The Tips of My Sunflower Leaves Are Turning Black

Grschef added on April 26, 2011 | Answered

Some of the leaves are turning black and starting to curl. The plants look healthy otherwise. I'm watching the amount of water and I would say they are getting enough in the garden, but they are a little dry in the pots. I live in central Fl. (I was told Zone 9b) Thank you

I would increase the amount of water they are getting. You want to water them just as the top of the soil gets dry, but not dry all the way through.
